The bookmark’s labradorite carved skull has dazzling streaks of vibrant blue, gold, and light green. I don’t usually see patterns of iridescent streaks in labradorite stones, making this an outstanding specimen. With the stripes in the stone being so dramatic, they add an edgy look to the stone and bookmark.
I wove this design with three different weave patterns, which add texture and contrast.
I oxidized the copper to an exquisite patina, adding depth and contrast of color in the metal. I then tumbled the bookmark with steel shot; this strengthens the piece and adds a high gloss to the copper.
